For Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, it’s really cool to see Chet Holmgren make it to the NBA just three years after their viral moment in his camp.
To recall back in 2019, Holmgren became the talk of social media after he crossed Curry and dunked the ball on him. The then-high school big man principally used Steph’s own move on him. Now, he just made it to the NBA, with the Oklahoma City Thunder using their second overall pick on him.
Curry couldn’t be any prouder of what several of his camp’s alumni have completed, including Holmgren. While he’ll always remember how Chet embarrassed him, he said it’s “dope” that they at the moment are going to face one another in the large boys’ league.
“Chet hit me with my very own move, little double behind the back … he finished it in another way than I might though, I might have just pulled up from 3, he went to the basket and dunked on one other dude. It’s pretty dope that he’s now within the league because the No. 2 pick,” Curry explained, per Bleacher Report.
It would definitely be exciting to see Stephen Curry and Chet Holmgren play against one another within the regular season given the history they’ve. Surely, Thunder fans would need to see their rookie pull off the identical move on the Warriors star once more.
As for Golden State fans, who wouldn’t want to observe Curry get his payback? That’s must-see TV!
Luckily for everybody, the Thunder and Warriors shall be meeting multiple times in 2022-23.
